As survivors of abuse, we are all inevitably left with varying forms of aftermath to clean up and purge from our hearts and minds. There is no doubt that working through this damage can be daunting, difficult, and painful. However, our mindset has a lot to do with respect to not how quickly we overcome but HOW WELL we work through it so we can become whole, healthy, and happy. After so much pain, we all deserve the peace and happiness that comes from being comfortable in our skin and accepting that while things may not be optimal standard in our lives, we certainly have the capability to use what we DO have in our favor to forge the best lives we can. Watch the video at the beginning and THEN read the post. Lizzie Velasquez is a wonderful example for all of us. While she may not be a survivor of domestic violence, she has had to endure her share of pain at the hands of those who are cruel and merciless. Her attitude will be encouraging.
In love and support,
